Shakib Uproots Stumps In Anger Twice In A Game, Renders Apology But Fans Aren’t Pleased

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan created yet another controversy with his atrocious behaviour during a local T20 match in his home country. Shakib lost his cool not once but twice at the on-field umpire during the game, something which is least expected from a player of his stature. Having top-scored for his side Mohammedan Sporting Club, Shakib was expected to lead them by example but his actions brought utter not just to his team but the entire nation, where millions of people follow cricket religiously.

The first incident happened when Shakib’s LBW appeal against his international teammate Mushfiqur Rahim was turned down by the  on-field umpire on the penultimate ball of the fifth over. Unhappy with the umpire’s decision, Shakib kicked the stumps in anger and brought them down.

Having broken several codes of conducts with his first action, Shakib was allowed to continue in the game and he went one step further bringing the game into disrepute. Things got really dirty after the umpire signalled towards the ground staff to bring on the covers with only a ball left in the sixth over. Shakib’s temper knew no bounds as he charged in towards the umpire and uprooted the stumps and threw them on the ground.

Such incidents were never seen before on a cricket field and what made it even more shocking was a player of such magnitude having no regard for the match officials. Hence, the reaction that followed on social media were only natural, with people falling short of all adjectives to describe Shakib’s disgraceful behaviour.

Shocker from #Shakib.. Surely he’s a role model for many young Bangladeshi cricketers. And this behaviour is unacceptable.#Shakib @UTK_019 @Ayush70795293 @james92cricket @indianLoganwa @The_BarberPans @ClownNo69 @cricFan12987 pic.twitter.com/wXFqV8twFI

After facing the wrath on social media, Shakib posted an apology message on his Facebook account where he rendered his apology describing his actions as “human error” he was really ashamed of.

“Dear fans and followers, I am extremely sorry for losing my temper and ruining the match for everyone and especially those who are watching from home. An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately,” read Shakib’s post.

“I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t be repeating this again in the future. Thanks and love you all  SAH,” he added.

However, fans were in no mood to let him go away that easily and demanded serious actions be taken against him.

Absolutely disgraceful from Shakib . He did lose his cool during Nidahas earlier . Mushfiq a couple of times before this.

U19 boys were downright pathetic. Can tell you one thing many BD fans seem to like it & actually patronize this as “aggression “ 🤷🏾‍♂️ https://t.co/J7YgEfMXii
